Democrats have signaled that they are willing to do what’s necessary to make sure Trump’s presidency helps all Americans. As they should. NYT columnist Charles Blow put it this way:

There are setbacks (and this is a big one), but knowing that there are more than 60 million fellow Americans standing with us should give us strength as we fight for the ideals of fairness and equality for all.

As we embark on this treacherous journey, we can both defend our principles and exemplify them: Decency, dignity, compassion, justice for all.
